While the 43rd Annual Daytime Emmys won’t be televised this year, key components of it will be available via the Twitter app Periscope on the 1st live streaming channel for Periscope … Parachute TV!

According to The Wrap on Wednesday, the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) has teamed up with  Parachute TV, to provide Daytime TV fans with unique, behind-the-scenes access on Periscope. Along with red carpet coverage on Parachute TV, Emmy winners will have an immediate opportunity to interact with fans on Periscope, moments after they make their way backstage.

Awards shows are doing an incredible job with live-streaming apps like Periscope and Facebook Live,” said Parachute TV Co-Founder Caroline Lesley, who will also serve as one of the event’s hosts on Periscope. “And giving fans a chance to interact with their favorite celebrities backstage is another great step forward.”   Parachute TV, which launched on Periscope last August, now reaches more than a million viewers.

Parachute TV will cover the red carpets of both the main ceremony on Sunday, May 1st and the Creative Arts Emmys on Friday night, April 29th.

So what do you think of getting an inside look at what’s happening via Periscope during the two Daytime Emmy ceremonies?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

While red carpet is appreciated by some I tend to go for the ceremony more.. That’s nice for those who enjoy them.. Hopefully the rumor is true and the telecast will be shown on line the very next day.. That will be nice

I do not care about the daytime emmy’s
I do not care about the talk, cooking, game shows .
I do not care to waste my time watching awards being given to shows I do not watch or care about..

The soap opera’s are a whole different side of daytime.
There should be ”Soap Opera” awards/emmys, only..
It would be quite inexpensive and time saving.

So– I will not be watching the daytime emmy’s..
I just want to see the soap awards and they will be shown on line and also the winners, as always..

There are not enough daytime serials to justify a soap opera only awards show.

Timm’s comment is not far from the truth. However, he forgot to add that the venue for the “televised” show will be the parking lot of a Big Lots in Van Nuys. Meanwhile, various soap websites will give us very up-beat news bits excitedly announcing the show — with the positive spin that, by having the event in such a location, it allows soap fans a better chance to mingle with the actors!! Soap “stars” such as Kim Zimmer and Colleen Zenk will be manning a folding table to sign autographs (along with selling homemade baked goods and raffle tickets).… Read more »

I echo Timmm, Barbara … you speak what many continue to feel. Re: GL, I feel your pain more than you know as I followed LIGHT religiously for more than 32 yrs, and the last five yrs under Wheeler’s regime was like watching a dying relative on life-support. (I’ll never forget how disingenuous she came-off on that 60 MINUTES piece spotlighting the end of GL; she turned-on the crocodile tears about how she tried to save the show, when in fact it should’ve slipped quietly away BEFORE she assumed the reins and created the mess that was the Peapack remotes… Read more »

They should stream the daytime emmy’s online. It’s garbage the way the fans are being disrespected. They have been visible in one form or another every other year. Why Not this time????

ALL the CRAP thats online and they cannot air the DTE’s? What about airing it on this site?

Lou Piikes

Because their aren’t enough visible daytime fans to make airing the daytime Emmy’s either on TV or online profitable.

Will we really get to see the winners the next day and where? Can there at least be live tweets for us to follow on goldderby? How do we even access “Parachute TV”? Why can’t CBS do a daytime special of at least the 10 major soap opera categories? This is so frustrating! I am so hoping that Kassie DePaiva finally wins an Emmy (she could lose to Finola Hughes or Maura West, but I am predicting Kassie finally wins) and I really want to see her acceptance speech if she does win! It’s so unfair. I only care about… Read more »

I know i’m read vacillating, between; Kassie DePaiva and Mary Beth Evans

I’m TORN

I’ve been watching MBE: for upwards of 20 plus years

I’ve ( ONLY ) watched Kassie DePaiva: truly since she debuted on DAYS in 2014

and I’ve fallen “in love” with her ACTING

so… i’m with you… I want to see her acceptance speech

“and the Emmy goes to…. ”

Kassie DePaiva

ROAR

thunderous Heart full

so… if the emmy panel… truly wants to share the gold… I don’t think either woman would “care”

“and the Emmy goes to….”

I really miss the good old days of looking forward to the Friday night in mid May every year to watch the daytime emmy awards. Two years ago they were not broadcasted on any network but someone posted the full show up on youtube so hopefully that will happen again this year. I honestly will settle for someone putting up the video clips for the six acting categories cause if any of my favorites end up winning then I will hate not getting to see it.

There many fans who are older who won’t have access to anything online. It’s so sad. If they would just make it a simple awards show: presenters, clips, opens the envelope, yay I won, thank you… And on to the next. It’s so unfair. Daytime comprises a lot more shows than the 4 soaps… So what? Are we to believe that ALL of Daytime TV doesn’t have enough viewership? I will say again… ABC, NBC & CBS should rotate the show like they used to on each network w wet three years! Go back to the day when it was… Read more »

Looking forward to it!! (I’ve been blessed to work as a consultant for NATAS PR for the past five yrs during Daytime Emmys Week and look forward to on-air coverage both on the red carpet(s) and backstage reactions for WED’s Nominees Reception, FRI’s Creative Arts ceremony and SUN’s Main , so look for me online!)

A month before its 5th season is set to bow, Queen Sugar has been renewed for its sixth season by OWN as it was announced on Thursday.  The first of its 10 episode season will drop on February 16th.

After having to shut down production due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it gave DuVernay time to retool the series remaining season episode and to incorporate the pandemic, and the Black Lives Matter protests of last summer and the general election. Production on Season 5 of the series did not begin until September of last year and ran till December 2020.

In a statement, Oprah Winfrey shared: “The way Ava creates space to allow these characters to embody real-world experiences is television at its finest and we are proud to continue this ground-breaking series. I hear from so many people that they see themselves in the Bordelon family, and my hope is that through this kind of storytelling the hearts and minds of people are opened for a deeper understanding and empathy of one another.”
